Can we treat a word as a different thing, and then use preposition that don't naturally cooccur with it? I don't know if this is considered a metaphor, but this is rarely done.

For example, I was thinking of saying the night is the sea metaphorically like this:

The night is an agitated sea

We sailed onto the night

As the storm raged

Now, can we also do this if we don't explicitly say they're the same?

The waves crashed onto our ship

We sailed onto the night

As the storm raged

I don't think this works, but can we do this if we give enough hints, and can the hints be found at the end of the poem instead of the beginning or it that not ok and weird?
